Amazon Echo price drops to new 2017 low in fresh Amazon sale


Ahead of Mother’s Day, we told you about a great sale on the insanely popular Amazon Echo. Through the end of the day on May 13, Amazon slashed the Echo’s price from $180 to $150, which at the time was the Echo’s lowest price of the year. Well, it turns out that designation is short-lived because Amazon just outdid itself. For a limited time you can save $80 on two Amazon Echos with the promo code ECHO2PACK, effectively dropping the price to $140 each. You’re not going to find a better deal than that unless you pick up a refurbished Echo, which is currently on sale for $5 less.

Here are some highlights from the Echo product page:

  • Plays all your music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more using just your voice
